What Safe2Tell Can/Cannot Do For You:

  • Safe2Tell is a way for students to report threats to their safety or the safety of someone else in a way that keeps them safe.
  • Safe2Tell helps increase awareness when school staff and/or administrators may not be aware that a situation has or is occurring for the purpose of prevention, early intervention, education and awareness.
  • If you choose to make a Safe2Tell report in order to advocate for your child’s safety, the report will be sent to the school directly unless you specifically request notification to the Superintendent’s office instead.
  • Safe2Tell does not notify the Reporting Party of the report outcome.  All outcome information is private and autonomous to Safe2Tell.
  • If you have previously reported the situation to your school staff and are not satisfied with the outcome, Safe2Tell is not able to enforce a different outcome.  Please find the venue within your school district for escalating these concerns.
  • Safe2Tell is not a resource for keeping a “record” of your school or child’s history.

What You Can Do to Advocate for Your Child:

  • Attempt to keep lines of communication open with your child’s teacher, your school’s administrative staff and your Superintendent’s office.
  • Always keep the best interests of the child at the forefront of the conversation.
  • Please remember privacy laws protect EVERY student.  No one is entitled to know the disciplinary outcome of another student.
  • Ask your school/school district if there is a preferred protocol or resource staff dedicated to parents who need assistance advocating for their child.
  • As a role model, have your student(s) help you download the Safe2Tell App on your phone.
